A low frequency of post infection-IBS in patients attended in a tertiary referral center in M éxico.

CONCLUSIONS: in Mexico, there is a very low prevalence of PI-IBS in patients from a tertiary-referral center. However, it varies according to the surrogate-criteria used. The later needs to be taken into account when performing PI-IBS studies. PMID: 31718206 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Discussion Gastrostomy tubes (GT or GTubes) have been used to support patients for about a century. They are placed between the abdominal skin and the stomach either percutaneously or surgically. The tubes can be a standard long tube with either a bumper or inflatable balloon internally and externally they have a retention piece to hold the GT in place. A button or low profile tube are similar but extend just beyond the skin. Reasons for GT placement include: Nutritional support Hydration maintenance Medication management Aspiration avoidance Gastric stasis decompression Obstruction bypass Quality of life improvement for...

Essentials Prophylaxis is the standard of care for congenital factor XIII‐A (FXIII‐A) deficiency. Six children with FXIII‐A deficiency received once‐monthly prophylaxis with recombinant FXIII‐A. Prophylaxis was well tolerated and no anti‐FXIII antibodies were detected. Prophylaxis was effective with an annualized bleeding rate of zero. SummaryBackgroundFactor XIII deficiency is a rare, severe congenital bleeding disorder. Monthly prophylaxis with recombinant FXIII A‐Subunit (rFXIII) has demonstrated favorable safety and efficacy in patients aged ≥ 6 years, and may similarly benefit youn...

AbstractWhile endometriosis typically affects the ovaries, deep infiltrating endometriosis can affect the gastrointestinal tract, urinary tract, and deep pelvis, awareness of which is important for radiologists. Symptoms are nonspecific and can range from chronic abdominal and deep pelvic pain to nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, hematuria, and rectal bleeding. Ultrasound and computed tomography may show nonspecific soft-tissue density masses causing bowel obstruction and hydronephrosis. This constellation of presenting symptoms and imaging evidence is easily mistaken for other pathologies including infectious gast...

We present the case of an 18-year-old male patient that was referred to our gastrenterology department with history of intermittent painless hematochezia since childhood. During such instances, he was diagnosed with bowel intussusception, eosinophilic gastroenteritis and inflammatory bowel disease at 4, 6 and 8 years old, respectively. He underwent treatment with 5-aminosalicylic acid for two years, without improvement of symptoms. He was then lost to follow-up until our observation. His physical examination was unremarkable except for digital rectal examination which found a nodular compressible mass by the palpating fing...
